    That's the only way I notch tube. By cutting it with a saw. Works great, and quick as hell once you get the hang of it. And theyre tight enough to Tig weld if you know what you're doing.

    Search for the link to the site. You should be able to type in the degrees and it will print out a paper that you can wrap around the tube.

    I find the easiest and fastest way to notch is chop saw. Takes practice but once you get the hang if it, it'll be faster then hole saw notching and less expensive on buying hole saws.

    To get your angles, try 1.5" painters blue tape. Spread the tape across the span where you want the tube, then mark the direction of the connecting tubes.
    Take off the tape and lay it on the tube you will be notching, then cut where it's needed.

    Thanks Rgvkid....I've been using an old HF notcher but it's out of tolerance now. Gonna play with the chop saw a bit and see if I can make tighter notches...thanks
